    Shaping the dough around the olives is even easier- simply pat a couple of teaspoons into a 2-inch circle, place an olive in the center and wrap the dough around the olive, rollin into a ball with your hands to seal.  and tweaked it to my liking. But, hey, everyone does that, right? I m so glad I did, too. The tangy flavor of the green olive gives these bites a nice pop of flavor that blends well with the sharp cheddar cheese. In fact, I can t stop eating them!
